Ann Dvorak: Hollywood's Forgotten Rebel

University Press of Kentucky, 2013. First edition. Hardcover. First printing. Hardcover. xi+ 370 pp. with index. Illustrated with photos. Fine in fine dust jacket. With unique beauty and refined acting skills, Ann Dvorak (1911-1979) found success in Golden Age Hollywood during a time when many actors were still struggling to adapt to the era of talkies. Critics dubbed her "Hollywood's New Cinderella" after Howard Hughes cast her in the 1932 "Scarface". Dvorak reached the pinnacle of her success in the early 30s but was one of the first individuals to dare to challenge the studio system when she walked out on her Warner Brothers contract. She would return to Warner Brothers but the studio retaliated by casting her in less significant roles and she later initiated a legal dispute over her contract. Fine / fine. Item #E27585
